Sara Isaksson / Anders Widmark – To Open Up My Heart

Sara Isaksson has one of Sweden’s most beautiful voices. In this clip she plays Anders Widmark:s (piano) song “To Open Up My Heart”. A great song that may fit well to tomorrow’s Valentines. Modest, honest, upright and touches our hearts, and I guess those words all describe what a healthy relationship is all about.

In my “Best Albums Of All Times” Sara Isakssons album Red Eden was one of my choices. You’ll find that link here

Nicky – Great Debut Single, “Wake Up”

Great debut by Nicky (Åslund), from Oxelösund in Sweden!

There are so many “guy/girl sings with a guitar”-artists out there, but this guy truly stands out. A voice that leaves no one without an opinion.

Wake up is written by Nicky

Swedish Music: Vita Bergen – Disconnection

Since over 90% of this blog’s visitors comes from other countries than Sweden, I try to give samples of the Swedish Music scene. This is a new Swedish project called Vita Bergen (White Mountains in english). A great group, with a modern/contemporary sound. As always when I hear new music I’m starting to look for similarities with other artists, and with Vita Bergen I think you’ll find some strong influences from groups like Arcade Fire.

Vita Bergens music can be described as pompous, melodic with heavy synth drapes in the background.

Even though “Curtains” seems to be their own first choice from this EP, I think that the track Disconnection is even better. Great track, and a great debut from this Swedish group!
